Is there a way to see what mates hinder additional mates?

When I add mates to parts in an assembly that seemingly should be no problem, Solidworks says I can't do it.  Is there any easy way to find out what mates are stopping it?  I can force the mate but dealing with all the warnings (suppressing one at a time, etc.) takes a lot of time.  Is there a shortcut?  Something more defined than the generic and worthless "what's wrong"  responses.

 

Thanks!
